Simply provide a photo and an imaginative text prompt, and watch as your artistic vision is brought to life by LumaMap’s AI-powered image generation feature. Hours of design work can now be achieved with just a single click.
Made for beginners
(and for pros)
LumaMap’s intuitive tools and straight-forward workflow make it easy for beginners to get started with projection mapping without the learning curve. The creative potential enables even pros to level up their displays too.
Get started with projection mapping with one application. LumaMap brings together all the tools needed to transform a plain surface into a captivating projection display. Mapping, AI and creative art tools, all in one place.
Unique to you
No two AI generations are alike. This means you won’t see a projected display like yours anywhere else. It’s one-of-a-kind, completely unique to you and your vision.
Map in minutes
Say goodbye to the painstaking task of manually outlining your house. LumaMap’s intuitive corner pinning controls streamline the process, allowing you to create a mapping guide from a simple reference image within minutes.
Be the Picasso of Pixels. No Art Degree Needed
Use the handy built-in Art Tools to roughly sketch your vision. Let the AI generator do the rest. Artistic talent not required!

You need an internet connection to use the AI features of the software.
LumaMap is the full, paid mapping application which includes powerful AI and art tools.
LumaMap Lite is a free version of the application that allows you to import an image or video, use the mapping tools and export your mapping as an image or video file. LumaMap Lite does not contain any of the AI or art tool features that are included in the full version of the application.
The application handles just one piece of media at a time.
In principle you can project on any surface, but some surfaces are more suitable others.
LumaMap works best when the projector is close to perpendicular with the projection surface and there is not too much perspective in the reference photo you import into the software.
LumaMap’s workflow is currently not well suited to cake mapping, but this is something we hope to improve in the future.
LumaMap enables you to create creative facades using AI which can be used as standalone assets or taken into other software and combined with further animations and effects.
LumaMap also helps you quickly produce the ‘projector’s eye view’ mapping guide which is the starting point of a mapping show.
LumaMap is not intended to replace software like DaVinci Resolve or After Effects for animating complete projection shows.
Yes, you can play media from LumaMap and output it through an external display.
Yes, absolutely. When you are happy with your mapping you can export what is in your canvas. You can then load that exported image or video on to a media player connected directly to your projector.
You cannot output to more than one display from LumaMap.
If you want to use more than one projector you need to go through the mapping workflow for each projector individually.
LumaMap is using DreamStudio by Stability.ai, the developers behind Stable Diffusion.
There is no limit to how many images you can generate.
The software comes bundled with 1000 credits. This will give you 1000 image generations with standard models. You can use these up as quickly or slowly as you like. There is no daily limit and they don’t expire.
If you use up those 1000 credits, you can sign up to DreamStudio and purchase your own credits. You can then enter your API into the software to keep generating images to your heart’s content. Learn how to add your own API key.
